ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - St. Paul officials have approved a $65,000 settlement to a man who says he was bitten by a city police dog during a search for another person.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports (https://bit.ly/1pHwHLY ) the city council voted Wednesday in favor of the settlement to 35-year-old Kongmeng Kue. The 35-year-old man’s lawyer says his client suffered bites, scratches and other injuries requiring medical treatment in the May 2012 incident.

Kue will receive $32,000 in the settlement. His attorneys will get about $20,000 and roughly $13,000 will go to medical expenses.

Police say Kue was bitten during a search for a man who had dropped a gun.

The city has said Kue’s constitutional rights weren’t violated.

The council approved the settlement without discussion as part of a larger consent agenda.
